Disgraced former president’s defense cross-examines Michael Cohen in hush money trial

Source: CNN

“Donald Trump’s attorney Todd Blanche began his confrontation with Michael Cohen on Tuesday by throwing the former fixer’s language back in his face. Blanche confirmed the two had never spoken, but asked Cohen whether he knew who he was already since Cohen ‘went on TikTok and called me a crying little sh*t’ just before the trial began. ‘Sounds like something I would say,’ responded Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer. The question set the tone for the cross-examination of the Manhattan district attorney’s key witness in the hush money trial. For roughly two hours, Blanche began a cross-examination to discredit Cohen’s allegations against Trump. Blanche confirmed his questioning will take most of the day when court picks up on Thursday.” (05/14/24)
